There is not much else in Gloucestershire suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

What is the reason for new build conveyancing in Gloucestershire being more expensive?

Purchasing a new build home is completely distinct from the standard house purchase conveyancing in Gloucestershire.

Furthermore new build properties frequently necessitate examination of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Lenders obligations are also more detailed. Taking into account the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
